Pope Francis Says Accused Pastors Are Like Jesus on ‘Good Friday’

Breitbart: Bishops who are accused should remain silent like Jesus on Good Friday when the crowds called out for his crucifixion, Pope Francis said Tuesday.

When people insulted Jesus on Good Friday and shouted, “Crucify him,” the pope said in his morning homily at the chapel of the Santa Marta residence, “he remained silent because he had compassion for those people deceived by the powerful.”

“He was silent. He prayed,” Francis said.

“In the same way, the pastor, in difficult times, in times when the devil is unleashed, where the pastor is accused—accused by the Great Accuser through so many people, so many powerful ones—suffers, offers his life and prays,” the pope said.

At the conclusion of the homily, Francis invited the congregation to pray for the bishops. “Take up the Gospel and read, and see Jesus, and where his authority lies. And ask the grace that all pastors may have this authority: an authority that is a grace of the Holy Spirit,” he said.

Tuesday’s homily marked the fourth occasion in two weeks where the pope decried the action of those who accuse bishops, comparing them to the devil, the “Great Accuser.”

Last week, Francis compared Vatican whistleblower Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò to Satan, the “Great Accuser,” after Viganò released an 11-page document filled with allegations of the mishandling of serial homosexual abuser Cardinal Theodore McCarrick by high-ranking prelates, including the pope himself. read more

  1. He is tripling down on this and using Jesus’ name to cover for villains. This is pretty demented and sad. I think Pope needs a check up from the neck up.

  2. And you sir, unfortunately, are a liberal mushbrain every day of the week. Resign and let a religious man take over.

  3. MJA said, “Anyone hear from the muslims he’s babysitting behind vatican walls?”

    Who do you think is washing their feet? Muslim foot washing seems to be one of Pope Sodomy’s kinks.

  4. I’m thinking brain tumor, well, no, McCain had that and did not manage to be that crazy. Must be drugs, the kind that make you batcrap crazy.

    I went from moarning with my Catholic friends to “okay, get the popcorn”. How out of touch must that man be? The Vortex guy is going to freak, I cant wait.

  5. This is what taking God’s name in vain is all about.

    I wouldn’t make a very good god. I so want God to rain his holy fire of justice down on this man for all the evil he has done and allows to happen in God’s name.

    God is merciful (giving us President Trump) but his patience only goes so far. He gives us time to repent, but when it’s his time to act, watch out.

  6. The Fake media is as invested in propping up and covering for Pope Narcissus as they were in acting as propaganda ministry for Obama. This clip lays out how the Fake media protected the guilty.
    The obvious double standard.

    This is also “must watch” if you actually want to know the level of depravity of these Marxist infiltrators, culminating in the installation of Bergoglio & Co:

    And to leave The Church over this scandal being brought to light is as stupid a response as would be to deny The American Experiment because Obama and his merry band of Marxists were in charge.


  7. STONE HIM. (it doesn’t require any polls)

    “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality”

  8. The Poop believes there are three days and three nights after Friday and before Sunday. The real messiah said he would be three days and three nights in the earth. You need to recalculate you days. your wholiness.

  9. More evidence for the transatlantic Satanic Enthronement ritual alleged to have been conducted simultaneously in the Vatican and Charleston, SC in 1963. Satanic pedophiles, shielded by the holy-trolling Pope.

  10. I’ve been saying all along that Jorge Bergoglio is what Argentines “un vivo”. That literally translates to “live one” but that doesn’t capture the connotations of fraud, con man, liar, crook, and trickster in the original expression.

    ¡Jorge! ¡Me cago in la leche de tu madre!

  11. If you think about it, when you’re accused of molesting those kids you molested, you’re kind of like Jesus on Good Friday.

    In related news, if you pick up two transsexual hookers on a street corner, you’re kind of like Noah.

  12. The Barack Obama of Popedom, flaccid, spineless and clueless. Notice how he continues to ignore a huge problem by deflecting to worthless issues never before addressed by a Pope?

    It’s being faithful.

    A political culture where fake climate change and plastic straws in the ocean are viewed as more important than sodomy, killing children and clerical homosexual predation and its cover-up is a world that will be more challenging to raising children and getting them to Heaven.

    It’s really just that simple. So yea, if a party or politician comes along and wants a more moral world, of course people of morality are gonna support that — pretty straight-forward.

    The problem — and it is a problem — is that one crowd just doesn’t believe in God as he has revealed Himself in His fullness in Christ and His Church.

  14. The Ann Barnhardt post (“Ann, how can you still be Catholic?”) that JDHasty links is an especially meaningful and very helpful post for Catholics who are experiencing deep pain with all of this… if any Catholic IOTWers haven’t read it yet.

  15. “Read the Bible” he says.
    Jesus in Matthew 18:6 shuts the
    Pope down.
    “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” 

  16. Silence is what allowed this scandal to fester and grow.
    He would do better to emulate Jesus when he kicked the money changers out of the temple.

  17. This kind of evil thinking by the Pope combined with the perversion and coverup of of sex crimes by pervert priest is the kind of thing that could lead to the loss of faith and the falling away from the church prophesized in the Bible.

    But it didn’t start with this pope, it started with the conspirators of the coup that forced out the previous pope, imo. Though I must admit, I am not catholic and have little understanding of the internal operations.

    I do find it difficult to not think when this guy kicks the bucket he is going to be real surprised about his final destination. And try to live a life where I won’t be surprised too.

  18. If patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, is Jesus the last refuge of a sodomite loving Vicar of Christ? Inquiring minds want to know.

  19. A whistleblower priest ends up dead


    Church Militant has been working on an in-depth investigation for the past few weeks on some nefarious goings on in the diocese of Buffalo, New York, including perhaps what appears to be a homicide aimed at covering up information about to be released by a whistleblower priest regarding the well-established clerical homosexual network in the diocese.

  20. The coals of hell are hot and ready to go, Francis.

    Just keep on comparing those disgusting, monstrous, unrepentant pedophiles to Jesus Christ, and you’ll end up seperated from Him for all eternity.

  21. Catholics; you don’t need this man, or any other. Read the Bible for yourself. The true Gospel is blissfully simple.

    The truth will set you free.

  22. The Pope is proof that Satan has demons amongst us. The Church is being gutted by the beast, while Satan’s “religion of peace” guts the world. Sweet.
